Advanced Structural Design and Bridge Engineering
Course Title: Advanced Structural Design and Bridge Engineering
Course Code: LJMU-7500-UCEPG
Programme: MSc in Civil Engineering
Appreciate the underlying differences in the behaviour and analysis of bridges and large structures and develop critical understanding of the philosophies of current Codes of Practice and in using appropriate methods for the design of steel, composite, prestressed concrete, tensile cables and bridge elements/deck structures
After completing the module the student should be able to:
1 Critically evaluate the use of common structural materials in large structures.
2 Explain in detail a range of structural theories and methods of analysis, and comprehend their relevance to real large and bridge structures and the roles of current codes of practice.
3 Demonstrate wide knowledge and comprehensive understanding of the analysis and design of steel, composite, prestressed concrete, tensile cables, bridge deck structures/elements, and apply this knowledge to design in unfamiliar situations.
